Hi List Members,
 
Zoom in to check out SP 66094, a truss rod box car. Appears to have ‘wrong way’ doors, opening to the left.
 
 
Enjoy!

It looks like a door and a half boxcar it’s an interesting photo.

PRR and PRR-controlled lines had over 49,000 cars in Classes XG, XH, and XL with left-opening doors.  Maybe it's your railroad that has "wrong way" doors.  That term belongs in the dustbin of history with "outside braced boxcar".

Not only door-and-a-half, but door-and-a-half Wagner doors.
